I have an unhealthy interest in most things French, and in particular their motors.

Test drove an '02 BMW 325xit last night...



Neat little car... less than 45k miles on it. Just hung up on the age of it. 8 model years old now...

Definitely - though not in that colour, nor on those wheels.

Taurus X??

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but has anyone driven the Taurus X/Freestyle? I need a bigger car and although they call this a X-Over, to me it looks like a big ol wagon.
Anyone have any experience? Seems like you can get a pretty decent deal on a used one w/AWD, Nav, DVD, and Sync.

You found a woman that chose to drive a wagon, with a manual transmission and the "big" motor? You better marry her or i might steal her.

When I met her she was driving a Nissan 4x2 truck with manual tranny and non-assisted steering.

We had one of these when I was really little...

...and I have some vague memories of it.

Hey! My wife had one of those too.

When we married, we *both* had mid-90s Nissan pickups.

I miss that thing. We sold it to my dad, who gave it to a guy to use as his farm truck--it was rusting away.
